Krewe du Kanaval also is a fundraising effort for the Preservation Hall Foundation and Haitian relief organization KANPE — tickets and membership start at $1,000. Chassagne, whose family is from Haiti, wanted the krewe to reflect the "historical, cultural and spiritual link between New Orleans and Haiti" while benefiting "underserved people in both places," she said in a statement. Pres Hall's Ben Jaffe said the group "wanted to celebrate Mardi Gras in a unique way that reflected our reverence for the spiritual side of this unique holiday," something that also was "inclusive and representative of modern New Orleans, of post-Katrina culture." Jaffe's partnership with Arcade Fire signaled the "deep cultural connections between Haiti and New Orleans," he said. "Krewe du Kanaval is our way of expressing our mutual love and respect for these two beautiful cultures.”
